About this author

Author and screenwriter Stuart Connelly learned to write before he could crawl but to this day vacillates over which is the more impressive skill.

His book with Clarence B. Jones about Mr. Jones' intimate role in the 1963 March On Washington, Behind The Dream, was published in January 2011 by Palgrave Macmillan, and his digital short story collection, Confessions of a Velour-Shirted Man, is currently available.

A native of Syracuse, New York, Stuart currently divides his time between Manhattan and rural Pennsylvania. He is a recent National Education Press Award winner and a featured writer for The Huffington Post.


I was a guest at the American Black Film Festival in South Beach a few weeks back -- right around the time the jury was chosen for the George Zimmerman trial -- showing my new film The Suspect . The picture is shot in a distinctive style (the old Twilight Zone episodes were an influence) and during the question-and-answer session after the screening, a woman in the audience expressed her intere...

Stuart's Recent Updates

Behind the Dream by Clarence B. Jones
" It was very interesting to get a behind the scenes look at what went into the making of MLK, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. It was a quick and fascinating read. "
Behind the Dream by Clarence B. Jones
" A view from behind the scenes of the most stirring moment of the last half of the 20th Century, this book is a jewel.

As I reached its last paragraph, I found myself wishing it was longer, not because the book was in any way insufficient, but beca... " Read more of this review »

“Don't say you're sorry, ask me how much it cost.”
Stuart Connelly

“Jesus taught in parables for a reason.”
Stuart Connelly

“Do you prefer fermented or distilled?
This is a trick question. It doesn’t matter how much you like wine, because wine is social and writing is anti-social. This is a writer’s interview, writing is a lonely job, and spirits are the lubricant of the lonely. You might say all drinking is supposed to be social but there’s a difference, at one in the morning while you’re hunched over your computer, between opening up a bottle of Chardonnay and pouring two-fingers of bourbon into a tumbler. A gin martini, of course, splits the difference nicely, keeping you from feeling like a deadline reporter with a smoldering cigarette while still reminding you that your job is to be interesting for a living. Anyone who suggests you can make a martini with vodka, by the way, is probably in need of electroconvulsive therapy.”
